More information

The son of René de Cossé, seigneur of Brissac and of Cossé in Anjou, grand fauconnier du Roi, and of his wife Charlotte de Gouffier, he was an enfant d'honneur in the household of the dauphin François, son of François I; the young prince made him his premier écuyer.



Not robust by nature, he made himself an agile swordsman and horseman. Sent to the siege of Naples in 1528, he made a name for himself when his forces being attacked by the Spanish upon embarking from the galleys, he was forced back to the shore's edge: there, helmetless and without his cuirass, afoot, sword in hand, he made prisoner the armed knight on horseback who attacked him. Later he commanded a hundred light cavalry at the taking of Avigliana and at the castle of Susa in 1537.
